Straw Mulching or Straw Blowing consists of placing a uniform layer of straw or hay onto the soil, slope or other area(s) requiring stabilization. The process is typically used for soil stabilization as a temporary surface cover on disturbed areas until soils can be prepared for revegetation and permanent vegetation is established. This is especially effective where road work is being done or where steep slopes present a challenge in controlling erosion damage.
